Question: This is not a question, but I thought you might want to bring this study to the attention of your readers who are always complaining about how bad their fellow Washington drivers are.
Surprise. We’re not so bad after all.
We came in 13th best among the 50 states and District of Columbia in the Car Insurance Comparison
My advice: Quit complaining. Things could be much worst. You could live in Louisiana (which really does have the worst drivers).

Answer: Thanks, Janice. Readers take note.
We located the study at www.carinsurancecomparison.com, where you can check it out for yourselves.
Among other interesting findings. Vermont, Utah, New Hampshire, Minnesota and Oregon were the five top ranked states—in that order. Louisiana, South Carolina, Mississippi, Texas and Alabama were the five worst.
We have to note, though: Washington drivers ranked 7th worst in the fatality rate per 100 million miles traveled and 4th worst in the “failure to obey” category.
There was no separate category for slowpokes camping out in the fast lane, which might have dropped us farther down the list.
